On Saturday, January 12th, the 8thh annual Riverwalk Stone Crab & Seafood Festival presented by Brimstone Woodfire Grill returns to Esplanade Park; in the middle of the highly anticipated annual Florida Stone Crab Season. This event takes place in the heart of Downtown Fort Lauderdale from 11 am to 5 pm. The festival is free to attend and open to all ages! This celebration of our local South Florida Seafood Industry will feature some of Fort Lauderdale’s favorite seafood restaurants as they serve up an array of fresh seafood dishes starting at $5. Seafood lovers of all ages are welcome to come out rain or shine and enjoy a day of great food, cold drinks, music and more, including the crowd-favorite hermit crab races brought to you by Finster Murphy Seafood and a beer garden by Stephens Distributing.
-Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
No. This festival is open to all ages.
-What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
There are multiple parking options within blocks of the festival. Please keep in mind that the festival will be right next to the SOLD OUT show at Broward Center and across the street from the Museum of Discovery & Science so it will be hectic for sure! Carpooling, UBER, Lyft, taxi, and Brightline are suggested for peace of mind. There will be directional signs on Broward Boulevard to direct you to park for the festival.

Feel free to bring lawn chairs or a blanket and enjoy the day along the New River. No coolers or outside food or beverages, please.
